The Columbus symposium attracted one hundred fifty scientist from 19 nations to 5 days of technical periods, six box journeys, fee and dealing team conferences, and workshops. themes lined within the technical classes have been commonly just like these of prior conferences and integrated reconstruction of Gondwanaland, vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology, biogeography, glacial geology, Gondwana stratigraphy, financial geology, and tectonics and sedimentation at plate margins. A impressive distinction used to be in geographic insurance. As will be anticipated at a gathering co-hosted by way of the Institute of Polar reports and the dept of Geology and Minerology on the Ohio country college, the focal point of the assembly was once on Antarctica, with forty five% of the 102 papers overlaying the Ross Sea quarter, West Antarctica, and northern Victoria Land.

Example text

Additional fossils were found, and structures were mapped in order to resolve some of the uncertainties surrounding these rocks. These data are reported here and lead to the conclusion that the sequence is the upper part of the Robertson Bay Group and that they do not correlate with any of the Bowers Supergroup rocks. It is proposed that a new formation, the Handler Formation, be erected with the type section at Handler Ridge. The Handler Formation rocks are folded about northwest axes, and folds have shallow plunges except near thrust faults.
